    Let’s Get Ready!

Let’s Get Ready! promotes equal access to higher education for all students regardless of ability to pay. Volunteers work with students of Frederick Douglass Academy in Harlem to raise SAT scores, complete college applications, and accustom the students to the idea of life at college. The program offers free SAT preparation courses and college and financial aid advising to underserved high school students and their families. Interested in becoming a volunteer? Email us at
